Costume Information

For a Grandia II group in the next year or so with Kai, Seraphim-Cry and Caylithe. :B

Just putting it up for myself! Not starting it yet! XP

Hoping to use stretch velvet for the jacket, and I am planning on all the gold detail being appliqued into place, not painted.

Not quite sure how to achieve the giant puff sleeves or the wig of doom... but I have a long time to think it out.

AW HELL YEAH!!!, best character in Grandia 2 ever ^^. I'll be over the moon to see this cosplay, and am tempted to do a grandia 2 cosplay as well now.

Well I've never played any of the Grandia games (don't hurt me!) but this looks incredible! Velvet is lovely to touch but a bitch to work with (I found anyway - I imagine you'll do much better with it than I did). You're gonna look fantastic! ^_^

@NIghtmare: Not really. I've kind of put her on the backburner for a while as I have a lot of other costumes underway.

I will get her done at some point but not for a while and definately not for October. Will probably end up being a summer 2011 costume.

Artbooks (Posted 27th August 2009)

I've been looking through my 2 artbooks for Grandia 2 looking for additional references.
I've found a couple fo the back of the costume and the corset, advising it does up with buckles on the back, not with string as is traditional. I'm commissioning the corset from Sephirayne as I have no idea where to start with it.

Its handy to know that my books actually have guides in how Millenia puts her outfit on you get the layers right. They're cute. And she has an adorably annoyed expression throughout.

I've decided that when it comes to the tabbard I'm going to use the appliqué technique to make it as neat as possible, and I'm going to look into the beading too.

Compiling (Posted 17th April 2009)

I'm currently compiling material and patterns for Millenia.

I had a lovely surprise of my stretch velvet turning up last night. Its gorgeous. Its really scarlet, and oh-so-soft. I'm really looking forward to using it.
I have a pattern for the jacket which needs a lot of editting to work. And a pattern for Millenia's white shirt. I know on the art it looks strapless, but I'm going to add some small straps so it stays up.
I have to get the rest of my material, but I'm going to wait until after May Expo (and until I'bve made a dent in Celine) before I begin Millenia seriously. At the moment its just getting all the needed bits together, so I'm not running into fabricland every five minutes.
